Lilian Greenwood – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Transport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lilian Greenwood on 2016-07-20.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 27 June 2016 to Question 40827, what his Department’s revenue expenditure other than Network Rail expenditure was on the level crossing reform programme in the last Parliament; and how much such expenditure is budgeted for during the current Parliament.

Paul Maynard

There is a dedicated, ring-fenced, fund for Network Rail’s work to improve and close level crossings. As is usual, the Department’s work on the policy underpinning the level crossing reform programme forms part of a larger budget for railway safety and wider issues and is not therefore separately identifiable.
